. legal immigration. we have to move forward with immigration reform, marco rubio. >> senator, forgive me for interrupting, but as we move forward on immigration, your words, are you prepared, and do you think a majority of republicans are prepared, to give some legal status, whether full citizenship or legal status, to the full 8 million people here in this country illegally? >> this is something that needs to be discussed and debating. we have been debating it and discussing within our policy lunches. marco rubio is raising a number of different ways we can deal with the issues we face on immigration. that's the backbone of our country. the sena i'm the son of immigrants, and thinking about this, my dad took me to john kennedy's inauguration when i was 8. he was a cement finisher, had to quit school in ninth grade. this country is built on hard working men and women, the sons and daughters of immigrants. immigration is key and important for our nation. >> senator barrassso, i appreciate your time. margaret, i want to start with you. cautious. republicans said let's get things done. but
with marco rubio, and he told me and other conservatives cheering for this bill to not be too exuberant because this is just the principle we're outlining today. the president could mess this up, the house of representatives has to mull this over. this is the first step of many that need to happen. >> why would the president mess this up? i mean obama seems to have made this a priority. he was out last summer with an executive order to let the kids of illegals stay and go to school. why would he screw it up? >> well, i think he's largely not led on this issue for his entire first term, larry, i think it's instructive that the democrats today chose to partner up with senate republicans as opposed to waiting to join on the obama bill. frankly, i'm glad to see that the senate is leading on this. people like rubio deserve a lot of credit. if republicans put their fingers in their ears here and become the hell no caucus, it's going to be detrimental to the party. and i think there are probably some people along the same lines in the house thinking about this for longer than we realize. and t
like marco rubio, for instance, and others, and also you have the chamber of commerce, you have some republican vested interest. i would say the budget and immigration are the two areas, spending and immigration. >> can he get through some simple things on gun control, if not a ban on assault weapons. that might be impossible with republican caucus, but universal background checks? some smaller things that polls show most republicans around the country support. >> yeah, maybe. i don't know. i would support it. i can't speak for the others. i would think there is a chance that maybe on gun trafficking some things and it may be watered down somewhat, but he could at least make some progress. there could be a bill signing and you get people together and that could make it better for the next year and a half after that. >> i want to ask you something i know that seems unrelated but it is very important for the president. it's on foreign policy but it's on what's happening now in north africa. we had benghazi and now algeria and northern mali with the french. does he need to do more with
and what could be a comprehensive bill. i would hope that marco rubio and menendez and other members of the senate work together to gather something that is strong and comprehensive. a piece meal approach will not work. >> is this amnesty? >> you will see changes in the republican party on this issue. the republicans recognized politically that they have to have more inclusive policies. they have to reach out to people and morally. it's the right thing to do. welcome people to the country. it makes us stronger and enriches us. i think you will see a different tone to the debate and think there will be elements in both parties that oppose it. they worry that wages will be kept down if you let people into america. whatever you call it, amnesty. there is going to be the elements that will be marginalized and be fewer this debate than last time. >> i don't think there is any doubt they have a chance of passing comprehensive immigration and president bush tried unsuccessfully even though you have and ted kennedy. plunging temperatures, ice and snow gripping much of the country right now.
as senator marco rubio, the florida republican, also working on immigration reform. they are trying to get ahead of president obama who is going to be in nevada tomorrow talking about his immigration reform proposal, bringing back his 2011 and maybe adding more details on that. now, like the president, the senators, the gang of eight senators here, want to produce a pathway to citizenship, and their proposals would include a registration and probation program to allow illegal imgrants to stay and live and work in this country with a green card, provided they paid their back taxes and paid a penalty here and then got in line for the process for the legal citizenship application. they also want to improve border security. that's a big component of the plan as well as tracking legal immigrants, whether or not they leave when they are supposed to. they also want to strengthen the employment verification system, and they want to -- create a green card system for the top foreign college students here who get advanced degrees in math and the sciences. now, the white house did not shoot this down
, he will inherit a whole lot of problems. senator marco rubio, republican of florida, had a line about foreign policy saying the key is making sure you're not trying to do more than we can, while also ensuring we are not doing less than we should. rubio rattled off the hot spots in the mideast and kerry offered the this response. >> there's a monumental transformation taking place. this this biggest upheaval in that part of the world since the ottoman empire. since it came apart. it is a highly sectarian, divided, tribal part of the world. and i'm not sure that every policy has always been sensible on that. >> kerry said we'll do what we must to keep iran from getting nuclear weapons. shep? >> a really ugly problem is syria. what about that? >> senator kerry said there was a moment when the syrian regime was reaching out to the west, but the moment is gone. and then there was this exchange. >> every day that goes by in syria, it gets worse. every day that goes by it gets worse. so, there is a -- seems to me, a very strong elm tuesday -- empetus to realize our present policy is not work
democrats and three top republicans including florida's marco rubio and arizona's john mccain. >> we can't go on forever with 11 million people living in this country in the shadows in the n. an illegal status. >> reporter: immigration reform is one of the few issues in washington in which both sides are calling for sweeping reform. >> i do know there are a lot of democrats in congress who once and for all want to solve this problem, fix this mess, broken immigration system, and many of us agree with that. >> i see things that were once off the table for agreement and discussion being on the table with a serious pathway forward. >> reporter: but there are potential sticking points. >> i. do think that enforcement has to be a big part of it. >> reporter: republicans demand better border protection and laws that crack down on companys hiring illegal immigrants. fine print that will come into sharper focus this week as washington reopens the case for immigration reform. brian mooar, nbc news, washington. >>> in egypt, an angry president took to the airwaves tonight to announce tough new mea
here get citizenship. host: where is that coming from? guest: marco rubio is an important player from florida. he is a cuban-american and he has put forth a plan that would provide citizenship under strict circumstances for people who came to the country illegally. that is pretty big and house republicans have their own plan, some members are putting forward similar plans. obama has his own plan that we will hear about so and then that will look lot like what democrats, with a few more years ago and it is more liberal and is less likely that democrats will embrace that. the fact that both sides are talking about it suggests there is a possibility they could come together and do something within this next congress -- in this next congress behind immigration. republicans did not very do well in this election with the hispanic. they feel like they cannot completely abandon hispanics. they need to show they have some empathy for folks who are here illegally. host: when you look at the line of the senate, you of marco rubio and you have jeff lake, republican from arizona, and you have more
a talk that maybe immigration reform is a place there could be common ground. you heard marco rubio in the senate, paul ripe in the house, and maybe we can have like george w. bush, a republin vision that had legal status and maybe even citizenship for those in this country illegally, ballpark number about 10 million. would a tea party member like you support that? in the past, you've called that amnesty. >> that would be real hard for me, and i defined amnesty, and not many have because they want the broader definition when it's convenient. to grant amnesty is to pardon immigration law breakers and reward them with the objective of their crime. if that's what this bill does, it would fit the definition of amnesty. >> could your speaker survive if he allowed that bill to come to the floor of the house of representatives? >> i think we'd want to look at the language on that. john boehner's tone and his body language and everything i heard him say at the retreat in williamsburg, he and our leadership team was all about how we pull our conference together and work together. i don't thi
to do something. seeing leadership from people like marco rubio i think really does give a lot of republicans who might have doubts otherwise a real chance to think again. >> the credibility, the aura, the halo that may be needed here. jackie, those eight senators we were showing are putting their bipartisan plan out the day before the president is scheduled to outline his immigration proposal in a speech in las vegas. what are you seeing in the timing? are they trying to triang late? >> it shows momentum on this issue. here's the thing which has been the hitch on a couple different things this year already. the house. the house is going to be hard to get this through the house. it's going to be hard to get some house republicans on board. but the fact you have this bipartisan group of senators and the president and everyone stepping on each other trying to get their plan out first, it shows momentum on this issue and it does increase the chance something could get done on this. >> getting it through the house. what do they need from the senate? 89-8 like we saw in the fiscal c
, and florida senator marco rubio join this group as well. they are trying to get ahead of the president's speech in nevada tomorrow on his immigration plan which he introduced in 2011. just reading that over for fun. like the president, they want to create a pathway to citizenship, and their proposal includes a registration and probation program allowing illegals to stay and live and work in the united states with a green card as long as they paid back taxes and paid penalties and get in line for citizenship and approval. they also, however, want stronger border security and tracking of legal immigrants and whether or not they overstayed their welcome. they want to strengthen the employment verification system out there for immigrants, and those getting advanced degrees, ph.d. and masters in the math and the sciences. all of this is good politics, take a listen. >> look at the last election. look at the last election. we are losing dramatically the his pappic vote we think should be ours for a variety of reasons, and we got to understand that. >> in the last election, president obama go
reform -- when you have barack obama and senator marco rubio essentially in a similar place on immigration reform, i think you're going to get that. >> does the clock run out mid 2014? >> well, i think the record here is about a two-year kind of runway. that sounds about right to me. >> i think it's going to be shorter than that to be honest. let's not forget the fiscal issues and budget issues. he has 30 seconds before he has to sort of dive into those again. the next six months are really going to be full. >> cluck gabriel, sort of the same question to you. the rule of thumb is that the president has about 18 months to get his second term agenda underway and rolling and of course we know that an awful lot of presidential second terms have been marred by either major slips or scandals that impede the attainment of those lofty goals. >> i think 18 months is probably generous, tyler. but, you know, if he essentially does move out quickly on gun control and immigration, you know, immigration is a real wedge issue. that's an issue that democrats really have the potential to rea
an agreement on immigration reform. republicans john mccain, lindsey graham, marco rubio and jeff flake are joining the democrats chuck schumer and bennett to introduce a set of principles they want to guide immigration legislation as it moves through congress. here's what the four basics of this proposal look like. first create a tough but fair path to citizenship for illegal immigrants already here. contingent on meeting border security metrics. changes the system in a way that helps our economy. set up a verification program and overhaul the system for letting future workers into the united states. the goal is to have legislation drafted by the end of march. >>> the president's going to travel to vegas tomorrow and that is where he will speak publicly on his plans to move immigration reform and make that an immediate priority. of course, he's also moving on gun violence at the same time. so he's going to have to work at those paths simultaneously. we can attribute the new republican willingness to go along with republican reform to the republicans losing seven out of ten hispanic vot
small. i think marco rubio -- i thought he asked his questions with respect to the secretary of the state of the united states of america. to those men who felt attacking hillary clinton was the best way to go, i think they lost a great opportunity to try to help to get to the point of where we are at, what we need to do, and how we can go forward to protecting our people overseas. host: we have louis. caller: i personally do not believe -- i do not agree with the kentucky caller. i thought secretary clinton was arrogant as usual. she dodged a lot of questions. she is exactly like her husband, spout out a bunch of percentages and things like that that nobody checks the facts. i think the media is beyond belief. that is beside the point. hillary clinton is absolutely without a doubt a bipolar. she travels a lot. she never stays in one place. what good has she actually done a in the four years she has been in power? i think she is an absolute horrible person. when she got on tv and said, we came, we saw, and killed like a crazy person, i thought if george bush would have done t
this path to citizenship would take. there are certain things that republican senator marco rubio wants in this, that they put in this measure. and so, you know, i think there would be a little bit of difference from what the white house would want versus this plan. having said that, i think that people who really want to get immigration reform done, and this is the moment, because by a 3-1 margin republicans lost hispanic voters in the last election, so people who want to get something done are saying to the white house, you know, step aside, let this get some velocity on its own, and then eventually you can get involved. but don't brand it as president obama's proposal. >> let's get reaction before the event comes out, a preview of the debate about to come. anna navarro is a republican strategist. dan stein is the president of fair, the federation for american immigration reform. dan, i'll start with you. this has been an issue which conservative republicans said no, anything that grants legal status or citizenship to someone who crossed into the country illegally is amnesty. is it a
cain, marco rubio, jeff flake, lindsey graham, the democrats, chuck schumer, dick durbin, michael benn bennet, robert menendez. probably the most controversial part will be all of these folks here in this country illegally under this proposal, should it pass, would not be asked to leave the country. they would have a path to citizenship, a path to being legal and that, of course, the devil is going to be in the details on this. but that is going to be the test, whether conservative republicans who have been against this for a long time, whether they can sign on to it. >> we'll get a chance to listen to what the president has to say on this, as i mentioned, tomorrow in las vegas. chuck todd in washington. thank you very much. >> you got it. >>> let's check in with natalie morales with the days top stories. >> good morning, savannah and matt. >>> violence raging on the streets of cairo for the fifth straight day this morning. eamon . >> reporter: clashes taking place between protesters and police, as you mention ed, for the fifth straight day. all weekend long, intense fighting in the city of a
of thinking has been helpful even in the wake of the election. if you listen to what people like marco rubio or paul ryan have been saying, it's different from what they themselves were saying six months ago, a year ago. i think the focus is turning to the right place. that doesn't mean that he'll persuade the public, but it certainly helps to ask the right question if you're looking for the right answer. >> where joe, i want to bring up something that my friend john podhoretz mentioned, and i say that carefully because reihan salam, my name has up been butchered by others, so i want to thank you for the privilege of butchering someone else's name. it's a rare treat for me. [laughter] i wanted to ask you, part of what i heard in john podhoretz's remarks is that some of the difficulties we encountered, shall we say, during the invasion of iraq and the occupation were things that really damaged the republican brand in a deep way, yet -- and so you've had a lot to say about foreign policy. you've also had a thing or two to say about the republican position on taxes and a number of other issues.
already have prominent senators like marco rubio of florida coming out with proposals very similar to what president obama has called for and a lot of national republicans now saying that they know this is an issue they need to make progress on, as well. to nicolle wallace on this, as well. you also used the word for governor jeb bush of florida, one of those republicans, also saying this is the key to the republican party's future. >> right, and as a republican, marco maybe try to have them topple the power structures here in washington because they understand at a philosophical level, at a policy level and political level that our very survival as a party depends on getting this right and last republican or last president to have really put the power of the oval office behind this push for immigration reform was george w. bush. in hindsight it was a precious moment we let slip through our fingers. then he had senator ten kennedy and senator mccain and george w. bush and those three at the time were giants in washington could get -- couldn't get it done i think illustrates how high that m
